Mohammed Farhan Shah, fondly called Farhan within the firm, with clients and around town, has been with us since we started our practice in Fiji.
Farhan was called for admission to the Fiji High Court on 1 February 2019 and has ventured quite impressively into the firm’s general litigation and commercial law practise. As we say, he is the man to go to.
At the firm, Farhan closely works with the partners in general litigation matters involving tort and contract claims which include negligence, employment, as well as conveyancing, family, estates and immigration matters. For value added service, Farhan is committed to developing the firm’s ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) practice focusing on mediation and arbitration.
Before joining the firm, Farhan worked for the United Nations Development Programme in Fiji in 2017 as an Insurance Specialist and also interned at the Fiji Citizens’ Constitutional Forum in 2014. We appreciate this because a human rights perspective always adds to effective advice and satisfied clients.
Farhan is able to handle matters in context – he is fluent in English, Hindustani and Urdu (and he is on to Arabic lessons too). As an all-rounder, Farhan is a fullback in his community soccer team. One should definitely join with a brush to paint portraits with him (of course when inspiration hits!) – he has won prizes for his artwork. He loves reading too.
Farhan has an LLB degree and a Professional Diploma in Legal Practice qualification from the University of the South Pacific.
Farhan is involved in general litigation matters and advice as well as family law, conveyancing, property and estate matters and employment cases.
